‘Let’s swim the 12 days of Christmas’

theswimmerBack in the middle of summer (do you remember it – the long days, sunshine and warmth), in another moment of madness, our group of lunch time swimmers decided to swim the 12 days of Christmas. It comprises the following:

1 length + (1 length +2 lengths) + (1 length +2 lengths +3 lengths)  . . . . .

. . . . all the way up to 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 1 0 + 11 + 12

A total of 364  lengths, or 9100 metres or 9.1 kilometres.

Whichever way you put it, it’s a long way! – and it’s not a team effort – each one of us is swimming the total distance. It seemed a good idea when we fixed the as it was such a long way off, but the day has nearly arrived – it’s tomorrow (Thursday 5th)!

I thought that while we are at it, I could raise some money for the Ashmount Appeal, raising funds for extra needed equipment for the pupils of the new school. You can contribute at:

Just let me know if you want to come and join us doing it!!
